Women's and Gender Studies Department

Women's and Gender Studies (WGS) is an interdisciplinary major that examines the experiences and opportunities of women and men in relation to race, ethnicity, class and sexuality. WGS places gender in specific cultural and historical contexts in relation to families, communities, and nations. In addition, feminist scholarship in recent years has inspired a vast array of work on those who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered. Uniting inquiry in Women's and Gender Studies is the effort to understand and explain the inequalities between and among men and women and to envision change.
